In his interview, Jones confirmed that a number of NATO countries will participate in the initiative and deploy battalions in the Baltic countries and Poland as part of a new NATO mission. However, there is so far no specific information on how many troops and in what configuration each country will provide.
Jones also stressed that further details will be clarified during the NATO summit in Warsaw. He also mentioned that a motorized brigade of about 5,000 soldiers will be deployed in the region and that the US military will arrive there in January next year, suggesting that the military from other countries would arrive at NATO's eastern borders about the same time.
In addition, the US ambassador confirmed that the United States will be one of the countries responsible for the battalion in Poland.
"I am ready to confirm that the United States will be one of the responsible countries. Details on configuration on the territory of the Baltic countries and Poland have not yet been fully established and made public," he said.
Last Tuesday, NATO announced its readiness to deploy additional forces in the Baltic States and Poland. The declared aim of the maneuver is to "protect its Eastern European allies from the so-called Russian aggression."
